on the table hits the big three really hard. but feel good about the fact that tonight john boehner was having pizza with the tea partiers. the folks that say they won't sign on to anything. congressman kucinich calls the plan a raw deal. he's here and he's fired up tonight. this is the ed show, let's get to work. >> all of the candidates are going to have to demonstrate they can do all of the job all of the time. >> tim pawlenty is taking cheap shops at a republican front-runner. tonight i'm going to defend michele bachmann. >> i'm not going to allow anyone to take a pufrmg at me. >> alan west refuses to apologize for his sexist remarks. today he says she owes him an apology. where's the outrage? >>> if you thought the defense of news corp. was odd, wait until you hear bill o'reilly's stance. >>> the president first tried to sell his plan to nancy pelosi and harry reid. and then the obstructionists came over to the white house. boehner and mk skon el. they have to convince members of their party to accept over a trillion dollars in revenue increases in order to take this zeal. don't hold your
," my name is jon stewart. big show. big, big, big, big, big show. our guests tonight, we have on tonight's program pakistan's former president pervez musharraf. my guess is we'll have a delightful beverage and a lovely conversation. (cheers and applause) so let's begin tonight with the on going "news of the world" phone hacking scandal. to get you caught up, a seemingly simple story. ma and pa owned newspaper hacking into a murdered little girl's phone and... (laughter). ... paying the police to cover it up. has unfortunately turned ugly. (laughter) as of now, london's two top policemen at scotland yard let's call them officer blu rotton has resigned. andrew colton has been arrested and sunday tragically authorities arrested poor mrs. weasley. (laughter) wait, no that's not mrs. weasley. sorry, tragically, authorities arrested the guy from simply red. yeah, that's it. actually, arrested was rebekah brooks, the woman who ran "news of the world" during the worst of-- as the british call them-- the troubles. (laughter) brooks had already resigned her post friday, ostensibly to sp
, like he did to you in an e-mail. we'll be right back. [cheering and applause] ...was it something big? ...or something small? ...something old? ...or something new? ...or maybe, just maybe... it's something you haven't seen yet. the 2nd generation of intel core processors. stunning visuals, intelligent performance. this is visibly smart. young boy: my polo's lookin' fly! young girl: we're all dressed for show and tell. mom: and it's only july! kids: july?! anncr: who's ready for school? old navy khakis from $12 dollars, polos from $5.50. everybody. thank you. my guest tonight is a harvard professor of philosophy. i'll ask him, what is the sound of one audience clapping? please welcome michael sandell. [cheering and applause] thank you. professor, please, sit down. all right. sir, let's get the crm v. out here. it's kind of impressive for those who like things. you're a professor at harvard, so you're smarty pants. you have thought political philosophy since 1980. you teach a special undergraduate court called "justice." 15,000 students have taken it so far. you can watch this on youtu
the washington post, and one from what we played on msnbc earlier on jansing & company. >> well, it is a big deal as it was originally recordednd mr. hoyer in the whip meeting this morning mentioned it, so if mr. norquist was taking a position that is reasonable that expiring tax cuts under existing law were not tax increases that creates a lot of breathing room for us and head room. >> a lot. >> but my understanding is that he has gone back on that, and so revenues have to be part of it, and, you know, when i talk candidly to many of the republican colleagues, they understand that. and they are worried about the revenues and not getting the cuts, and there is anxiety on the net level of negotiation, but most folks understand that when we are spending 22% of the gdp and collecting revenues lower than the eisenhower era at 15%, that doesn't work. >> congressman, under the gun today? if not today, a deal by friday? what do you think? >> well, honestly, i don't know, but what i do know is that we have to have a deal and we cannot allow america to default. if you are eric cantor and want to have more
those examples to test big philosophical ideas, justice, fairness, individual rights, property rights, the meaning of the common good, what is it to be a citizen. so what the book does and what the course does is to try to connect big ideas of philosophy with the arguments we have about politics and about ethics every day. and my hunch is that if we did that in our public life more generally, our political debates would go a lot better than they're going today. >> stephen: now i happen to think that the answer to "what is the right thing to do" is it is generally that thing that you least want to do. [laughter] it's the thing that never falls off your list but is always at the bottom of your list. and you're always looking the pay someone else to do it. is that anywhere in your equation? >> no. no. [laughter] no. but it is sometimes hard to do the right thing. and the challenge for politics and for moral reasoning is to see if we can do a better jonathan we are doing these days at reasoning, even disagreeing together publicly about big moral questions. so what i'm trying to do in the
people on board. it looks like right now they're headed in the right direction toward a big plan, exactly what the president wanted. lynn? >> brian, thanks so much. well, last night on "chris matthews," chris asked gang of six senators, mark warner what sets their deficit reduction plan apart from other proposals put forth by republicans? >> this is the first time we've seen a bipartisan plan that includes revenues, that, it really is comprehensive, it's bipartisan. it isn't perfect. but when the alternative is we're going to drive this country over the cliff, i think we've got to start with something that actually gets the job done, that gives us that comprehensive approach, and the fact that we had a whole lot of democrats and republicans yesterday saying, yeah, i'm ready to at least move to the next step, was a good sign. we've got to realize we're 13 days away from a default. we're 13 days away from an indirect tax increase with every american where their interest rates skyrocket and the government can't pay its bills. we've got to be responsible and get something done. if we can buil
the nation and getting worse before it gets better. >>> closing court a big city has to turn people away because the money has run out. is this any way for courts in america to do business? >>> family ties. if you have the gene that raises your risk of alzheimer's disease, would you want to know about it? tonight the story of a family that had to make that decision. >>> making a difference for noble animals that deserve a better life. >>> and coming in for a very last time. >>> and coming in for a very last time. nightly news begins right now. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> good evening. they tell us the scientific explanation is this. high pressure compressing the air, cooking the air and ramming it down on top of us and holding it there. but here's the real problem. there are now 34 states where there are heat advisories or heat warnings. one million square miles of our country where folks are being warned about the heat tonight. this heat, the severe heart of it, affects 141 million americans as it's moved over big population centers, we can see how it's gotten wors
-- it has big tax increases in it and all the spending cuts will happen in the out years. well, how many times do politicians think they can pull that one over on the american people? >> reporter: the split among republicans made it difficult for party leaders to determine just what might pass the house. whatever it turns out to be, it still must be acceptable to senate democrats and ultimately to the president. this morning, the senate's majority leader democrat harry reid challenged house speaker john boehner to take matters in hand. >> right now, i'm at a point where we need to hear from the house of representatives. we've planned to go forward over here, but until we hear from the house all our work is for naught. i await word from the speaker. >> reporter: in the meantime, there's general agreement that translating the complex gang of six plan into legislation and votes before august second, is likely unrealistic. that could put the short-term emphasis back on a senate backup plan to let the president raise the debt ceiling on his own pending some final, long-term agreement. >> ifil
on a big deficit reduction plan that includes massive spending cuts, tax reform and entitlement reform, tax increases. so you can see here the clock is ticking and the end game here still very unclear. >> this thing just keeps on developing and you hear hopefulness and then schedules. you will keep us posted when you hear there's actually some kind of timeline we have to figure out whether we are going to have money to pay our bills on august 3rd or not. >> after two days of explosive hearings in the uk phone hacking scandal, relatives of 9/11 victims in the u.s. are now saying they will be meeting with attorney general eric holder soon. they asked for the meeting one-on-one since the fbi started investigating allegations that "news of the world" hacked the phones of survivors, victims and their families. the meeting has yet yet been set. >>> rupert murdoch is back in the united states. he and his wife returned to their new york home yesterday. there is a lot on rupert murdoch's plate. news corp. is facing an fbi investigation and at least two u.s. based lawsuits filed by shareholders. also
to agree on something balanced as long as it's big. in the house r there are republicans ideologically opposed to anything that increases revenue. now all the government deficit projections are based on the idea bush tax cuts expire for everyone, according to current statute, the end of next year. if you regard not only any change in the law that reduces the deficit as unacceptable but any failure to change the law is also unacceptable, then it's going to be very hard to pass anything through the house other than perhaps the mcconnell plan, without the savings in it. >> we're hearing from harry reid using the phrase, "time is of the essence," hearing that over and over again and taking us to the brink. do you get the feeling we are actually inching any closer to clenching a deal? >> i think the mcconnell proposal, with some savings we can all agree to, may very well end up being the package. it's very important to the president we have a 3.5, 4$4.5 trillion package. woe may not in this short time agree to more than a $5 million down payment and vague creation of commission goals, state
's population will be sweltering in a dangerous heat wave today. hot air and high humidity will make big cities along the i-95 corridor feel like a sauna. the national weather service says the heat wave may have contributed to 22 deaths already. >>> and london police are expanding their investigation into the phone hacking scandal. an official says it now involves newspapers beyond rupert murdoch's media empire including "the daily mail" and "daily mirror." the police task force has added 15 investigators, bringing the total working on the hacking scandal to 60. >>> nfl owners are meeting in atlanta today to vote on a tentative labor deal with players. the reported ten-year deal, if finalized, would divvy up the league's $9 billion in annual revenue. players were supposed to vote yesterday but never did, suggesting there's still a few details to work out. nfl fans say, enough already. >> 10% unemployment in the country, right? us poor folks scrap and scraping to get by. come on. it's billionaires against millionaires, right? can you not meet in the middle somewhere? >>> here's your chance to ta
of the program in just a little while. >> then a big scare in north carolina's outer banks. a 6-year-old girl attacked by a shark in a foot and a half of water. her mother was just a few feet away. luckily, this little girl survived and we'll be there live in just a little while. plus some important health advice for women. a new recommendation about when and how often you should get a mammogram, but it's confusing. it contradicts another recommendation that came out a year and a half ago. what are women to do? dr. nancy snyderman will be here to help us sort all of it out. >>> let's begin with the dramatic end to the space shuttle program. tom costello is at the kennedy space center. you had a front row seat. what was it like? >> it was a dramatic day and an emotional day for everybody here and it is not over. america's space shuttle program, 30 years ongoing since 1980, '81, actually is how in the history books. "atlantis" came down at 5:57 eastern time, it was its 33rd mission. in all, it's trekked 25 million miles, 327 days in orbit and at 5:57 this morning it came on rest on runway 15. h
or a sensation. any sense of that? >> the big story here, absolute absolutely. whether used as a mop. a ginger head mop. >> we'll have to leave it there. i'm matt miller in for dylan. "hardball" starting right now. >>> so what's the deal? let's play some "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm in for chris matthews tonight. leading off, deal or no deal. all day long there's been word that a deal between president obama and speaker john bane zer boehner is in the works to save the u.s. from default. pub lkly both sides are denying it. it's clear adults on both sides are trying to avoid default. how do you get to an agreement when pea tae tea parters are saying no deal with tax increases and democrats are saying, no deal without them? we crunched numbers and default would seem to affect almost every american home. >>> also, does michele bachmann have mi have migraines? may be debilitated for days at time or something we would have never mentioned about a male candidate? >>> how did an anti-american terrorist become so trusted by u.s. officials in afghanistan he was allowed close eno
. but it remains to be seen whether there will be a big enough reduction in great that for that to happen, and whether they have managed to build a fire wall around greece. >> do you think this deal is just another sticking plaster? >> i think it will be difficult for this deal completely to save greece. it is not clear, because we are not seeing all the details. the reduction in debt that private debt holders are expected to take is not that big. it is a reduction of 20% in the net present value. unless the official debt is good to come in with gigantic amounts of money -- greece is going to still have a giant debt burden. it is difficult because the greek growth rate is not high and the government has trouble collecting taxes. unless greece suddenly becomes much more productive and competitive, it is likely they will have to come back and do another debt reduction further down . >> is this bailout ultimately political by leaders who want to save the eurozone, red and economic? >> when it comes to saving the eurozone, the two are intertwined. you could be more cynical and say it is to do
while. >>> a big scare in north carolina's outer banks. a 6-year-old girl attacked by a shark in a foot and a half of water. her mother was just a few feet away. luckily, this little girl survived. we're going to be there live in just a little while. >>> plus, important health advise for women, new recommendation on when and how often you should get a mammogram. it's confusing. it contradicts another recommendation that came out a year and a half ago. what are women to do. dr. nancy schneiderman will be here to sort it out. >>> let's begin with the dramatic end to the shuttle program this morning. tom costello is at the kennedy space center. you had a front row seat, what was it like? >> it was a dramatic and emotional day here. and now it's over. the space shuttle program ongoing for 30 years since '81 is now in the history books. "atlantis" came down at 5:37 eastern time. "atlantis" tracked 307 days in orbit. it came to rest on runway 1-5. the sights and sounds as "atlantis" came in for a landing. >> landing gear down and locked. having fired the imagination of a generation, a ship li
the possibility of doing something bigger. >> look, here's where things stand. there are three different big deals out there. number one is what the president and speaker boehner and eric cantor are negotiating, which is, yes, a big deal that is separate from anything the gang of six in the senate is working on. and then of course there's mcconnell-reid. one thing that's going on in the last 24 to 48 hours, is any deal that's mcconnell-reid that includes this idea of sort of the disapproval vote, giving the president more power to raise the debt ceiling, that thing has grown to the point of almost being toxic with some house republicans. in fact, they hate it so much, they may prefer to negotiate with the president directly. but for the white house, getting the 217 means making a deal acceptable to at least some of those houses with 87 new members. the man who's made himself their standard bearer, majority leader eric cantor put it this way. >> one-third of the republican conference and one-quarter of the entire house of representatives are freshmen, they're new. many of them have never served in
. >> it is not as big as a risk associated with drinking alcohol or being overweight which are things you can do something about. >> of this study adds to their understanding. >> now to the phone hacking scandal which rocked the british establishment have led to an fbi investigation. senior former employees have accused james murdock of being mistaken in one of his answers to the select committee of parliament earlier this week. rupert murdoch got a boost when a saudi prince that was the largest share of the company outside of the murdoch family voiced his support. nick, tell us, news corp shares are up for the first time in about two weeks. but the independent directors have hired their own lawyer. or why? >> we are getting mixed signals from the board. they have hired lawyers to protect shareholder value and to guard against maybe their own exposure. there have also been some reports that some of the more independent directors are thinking about ways in which rupert murdoch could give up his title of ceo at the company. this is a board that he controls pretty firmly. >> who is on the board? >>
as long as it's part of a big deal. yesterday, he called democratic leaders and later, republicans to the white house for more talks. gop leaders called those meetings productive. then there's the renewed gang of six plan, which offers a blueprint for a deal. >> devil is in the details. >> it doesn't have the stamp now of the committees on the house and senate side and that is going to be essential. >> but it has problems, too. some liberal members worry about its impact on social security and medicare, and the closed door meetings that led to the plan. >> we are an anti-gang group. we are trying to suppress the growth of gangs. we think that it is not healthy for washington. >> the negotiations could go down to the wire, with the nation's spending power hanging in the balance. >> it isn't perfect but when the alternative is we're going to drive this country over the cliff, i think we got to start with something that actually gets the job done. >> the one thing we've been committed to is getting a solution. >> mike, where do we stand? >> reporter: we're 14 days out. i just got an e
for millionaires and big corporations is what republicans have called for. they need to meet us somewhere. >> thank you, congressman steve israel. >> thank you. >>> joining me now, "washington post's" chris, author of "the fix". a managing editor also. let's visit this grover norquist issue. i think on tuesday in an interview with your "washington post" editorial board, grover norquist, the man famous for his anti-tax pledge, said that not renewing the bush tax cuts would not violate his pledge. listen to some of that audio released. >> not continuing a tax cut is not technically a tax increase. >> stow does not violate the pledge. >> we wouldn't hold it that way. it would be a very bad thing to do. it would raise taxes from where they are today. >> who don't follow the inside baseball the way you and i eat, drink and sleep it. what is the significance of grover norquist saying that? >> for people who don't know, grover norquist since 1985 has run a group called americans for tax reform pap d.c.-based group that does a lot of thing. basically, to holded line on no tax increases for republicans. eve
this if there is a framework. they are pushing for something big. trils of dollars in deficit savings the course of ten years. reminder of the moving parts that a deal like that would require the next several days major spending cuts, tax reform, entitlement reform and if democrats in the white house were to get their way, tax increases. you can see that is pretty much a heavy lift and so you still have a lot of people looking to a more modest deal that the top democrat and republican in the senate, harry reid and mitchell mcconnell are trying to work out which would be more spending cuts and perhaps more modest and perhaps giving the president the unenviable position to have to increase the debtcele himself with a minority support from congress. >> brianna keilar, thanks. >>> government is scrambling to pay its bills here is something americans don't want to hear. billions of dollars in your tax money is being wasted in afghanistan or worse. a new federal audit says that some of that cash may be funding, are you ready for this? the same insurgency that is killing americans. chris lawrence is at the pentagon
: this scandal may not seem like a big deal from afar but it's already left the prime minister scrambling, the head of scotland yard has resigned, and a skating parliamentary report accused rupert murdoch's company of deliberately trying to thwart a criminal investigation into the illegal activities of his newspaper here. >> isn't it time that we sent this non-tax paying murdoch back from whence he came? >> reporter: the prime minister didn't have to. murdoch boarded his private jet to fly home to the u.s. no doubt happy to leave london and all the turbulence behind. jeffrey cough rkofman, abc news loloon. >> certainly not over yet though as this continues to grow and we're investigating issues here. people, perhaps 9/11 victims, who might have had their cell phones hacked. >> it's scary. judging by the atmosphere there. and the number two, headlines in australia this morning, now that country may be stepping into the investigation to see if phone hacking occurred on their turf. so this thing's snowballing out of control. >> that's for sure. agreed. although you can hop in your private je
for the tabloids. host: what about the broadsheets? guest: it is known occasionally. there was a big scandal about mp's expenses last year, which came from information that is the voice of -- information that is the will serve and got on a computer disk. my newspaper paid for that because they thought it was in the public interest. that is a rare instance of a broadsheet paper paying for information. for the tabloids, we call it checkbook journalism. salacious information about a night out on the town with a celebrity or pop star or encounters with celebrities. that culture has grown and become more insidious over the past 20 or 30 years. host: how would you describe, to help put it in perspective -- by the way, we will put the numbers on the screen as we continue this conversation about the phone hacking investigation in the u.k. prime minister cameron spoke this morning at a problem about it and we carry that live on c- span -- spoke this morning in parliament about it and we carry that live on c-span2. we carry rupert murdoch and rebekah brooks yesterday and we will speak about that. how do you
! why is he introducing it? >> i think the president is acting in good faith. i think he wants a big deal. i think he will take cuts that contracts won't want and take taxes. because his presidency and the future of the country -- he believes -- [everyone talking at once] >> socialistic. that what you're saying. >> vaguely socialistic, yes. >> when they came out with the report he said -- >> what is that report? >> that's a report that deals with the long-term deficit problems of this country. >> they recommend taxation, do they not. >> they had a whole series of recommendations, and the president said i will stand by what they did, except they're still waiting for him to stand by them. >> he's never taken it seriously, in not in his budget, not in his budget state, know when bowl simpson came city. not when they wanted a clean debt limit increase. so that he is winning a debate over the fiscal future of the country is astonishing! and. >> but he's keeping something else off page one! what is it? >> this is a genuine. >> the unemployment problem? it doesn't even figure in this. >> co
-old lynx who shuddered at the thought of diversity. >> we don't want it. just be a big muddle. we just want to preserve our race. >> reporter: the twins say they're quite liberal now, embracing medical marijuana after lynx was diagnosed with cancer freshman year and lamb sought relief from back pain and scoliosis. for lynx and lamb, grooming into white supremacy started at birth. they were nurtured on racist beliefs by their mother april, who is unapologetic about her parenting and her beliefs. >> we were christians, they would be singing christian rock songs. but we're not, we're white nationalists. so of course that's a part of our life and i'm -- i share that part of my life with my children. >> reporter: but today, april believes the girls are just falling into peer pressure. they're saying what everyone wants to hear so they won't be harassed anymore. let's face it, it's not popular to be a white separatist. and they want to be popular. the girls, however, say this is who they are. and that time, experience, and love has changed them for the better. lamb says, we just want to come from
committed to a big deficit reduction package because he was always going to include something that was impossible for house republicans? >> but that was -- this is where i bang head on table, right? because i am -- i'm basically a right wing person and if i can get a deal where you preserve the infrastructure of tax rates, you give up something on deductions, schedules, and credits, and you get a democratic president to say i'll go first on medicare, i'll squeeze the providers, or i will make some changes on social security, it won't work when george w. bush leads, but when a democrat leads, okay, but you have to agree in this 1 in 6, 1 in 7 thing that you don't like. i say let's explore. and the president on health care and now again on this debt ceiling, as you say, he may have been very insincere and counting on republican intransigence to save him from his words, but the words were said, the door was there. this could be the moment where republicans got a lot out of a president who asked only a little from them, overconfident they'd say know. we now see he's rightly confid
perception losing less. because they keep talking about doing the big deal. so the public is blaming the white house less and blaming republicans and congress. but that doesn't get anybody anywhere. they still have to figure out a package. we're no closer at this moment. >> are all the problems we had last week, week before, yesterday, four hours ago, we still have all those problems? we're just talking about another maneuver and push it down to road. >> what's fascinating is i continue to hear these outsiders who don't work in washington describe this as washington as it works. there's always a mess in washington and they come together at the end. it's a normal washington process. and i'm talking to a lot of old washington hands who have been here for decades and they are calling this one as abnormal washington process. the difference with this one is that there are these new freshmen in the house of representatives that don't care about getting re-elected. you cannot sweeten this deal. you cannot win them over by adding something to the vote, really. and they don't know how this is
into an accident with a big rig. vigil will be held for him today. >> we want to take a peek at the golden gate bridge. it is a little foggy. it seems like the fog is drifting over marin county right now. we are looking at warmer temperatures today. the sun comes out and buy this will be baking in the mid-90s. we will be right back. >> space shuttle atlantis touched down at about 3:00 a.m.. the space shuttle era has ended. it will now be on display at kennedy space center. talk >> a taxicab caught on fire in front of our studios on van ness ave. the cab was smoking and burst into flames. there were two people inside of a taxicab. there are taken to hospital. the driver of the super shuttle was not taken to hospital. they were traveling at a pre fast rate of speed. police say one vehicle ran a red light. >> a committee meeting in debut after a recent officer involved shooting turned chaotic. the shooting happened saturday night. more on those stories in a minute including a live interview. on wall street, stocks are doing well. >> stocks are up and temperatures are up.
